General description

Styrene is a volatile compound, used in the manufacture of numerous types of plastic, glass fiber-reinforced resins, protective coatings, synthetic rubber and ion exchange resins.

Application

Styrene may be used as an analytical reference standard for the quantification of the analyte in air samples using thermal desorption-gas chromatography-mass spectrometry technique and comestible oil samples using headspace-mass spectrometry/gas chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry.
Refer to the product′s Certificate of Analysis for more information on a suitable instrument technique. Contact Technical Service for further support.

GC Analysis of Xylene Isomers on SLB®-IL60

GC Analysis of Xylene Isomers on SLB®-IL60 - The cresol (methylphenol) isomers are also precursors to many chemicals. This chromatogram of a mix of aromatic and methylphenol compounds was generated using an SLB-IL60 ionic liquid column. Its interaction mechanisms allow the separation of all three xylene isomers, and all three cresol isomers.
